President Hu also told Obama that China and the United States should continue boosting coordination of their macroeconomic policies and stick to the principle of dealing with trade frictions through dialogue on equal footing.
China has no intention to pursue a trade surplus against the United States and has been proactively taking measures to increase imports from the country, Hu said.
Hu called on the United States to refrain from trade protectionism and gradually reduce barriers to high-tech exports to China in order to achieve healthy and balanced bilateral economic and trade relations.
President Hu arrived in Ottawa Wednesday for a state visit to Canada before travelling to Toronto on Friday. He will leave Toronto for home on Sunday evening. Source: Xinhua 【1】 【2】
